Wakiso Giants head coach Alex Gitta could not afford to hide his excitement after his charges managed to secure a sensational win against record champions SC Villa in his third game at the helm.
The Purple Sharks registered a 3-1 emphatic victory against the Jogoo in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League at Kavumba Recreational Ground, Wakiso on Wednesday evening.
“I have enjoyed beating Villa and I must say it has been a sweet win,” Gita excitingly told Football256 shortly after the game at Kavumba in an interview.
“It is always a good time beating SC Villa because it is a historical team and that is why I am super excited having taken all the points away from them,” he added.
“However, the win could not get any sweeter having registered it from their home ground. We had never won against SC Villa since promotion and I am happy for having reached the mark.”
“It has been the fifth game for us (the team) but again it has been the third for me as the head coach so it has been a special day for me and the team at large.”
“I am glad to say my team has been improving for the last three games because players have exhibited the right attitude as well as kept in mind whatever we do on the training ground.”
Gitta also explained team captain Hassan Ssenyonjo’s absence from the starting eleven: “Every game calls for a different approach, that is why Ssenyonjo has not started today but that hardly means he is bad but the game called for those who took part.”
The win took Wakiso Giants to fourth position with nine points from the opening five games played on the 16-team log.
The Purple Sharks return to action on Friday, November 19, as they host Tooro United at Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium in Matchday six of the ongoing campaign.
